Diamondback, Corndog


Eighteen inches of crispy corn dog. Stuffed with cheese and bacon. And served up with fries.

Now how delicious does that sound? If you answered, "Absolutely, that sounds like the most delicious thing ever," then you answered correctly. Corn dogs are the best. But is this "mega corn dog" delicious enough to warrant its price tag? 

The Arizona Diamondbacks have announced the "D-Bat Dog," to be sold at Chase Field, and it costs a whopping $25. Then again, when you consider that it's so much food you definitely won't have to eat again that day and possibly not ever again, that kind of sounds like a deal.

The Internet has already begun justifying the cost: Yahoo points out that it's really only $1.39 per square inch of corn dog. While Forbes does that math and realizes if you split it with two friends, you get six inches of corn dog for $8.33. 

"This is really about providing our fans with new options each year, and in the case of some of our larger items, it's really about sharing with the family," team president and CEO Derrick Hall told ESPN.

He continued, "We don't have any expectations for the D-Bat, but we'll look forward to seeing if it becomes popular with our fans. Every night for us is a successful night because we offer the most affordable food prices in all of baseball."

For the record, this isn't even the most expensive dog in baseball history: In 2012, the Texas Rangers offered a 2-foot "Broomstick" chilidog for $26. Yep, 26 bucks for a dog that wasn't even corned. Now that's a rip off.
